Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

Maggie is an incredible teacher! My daughter has been taking lessons with her for 3 months now and she has improved so much. My daughter is in high school and has been playing for a few years now. She wanted to be more serious so we started taking lessons with Maggie. She has so much fun every lesson and I can hear her improve every time she practices after a lesson. Maggie makes playing the bass so fun. My daughter is always so excited and I can’t wait to see where this will lead to next.

Maggie has expert knowledge about the double bass from studying with members of the best orchestras in the US. Her teaching lead me to achieve things on the instrument that I didn't know I could do. I highly recommend her as a teacher!

Bgcheck Background Checked


I grew up in China through High School and moved to American about 16 years ago. I am bilingual in Mandarin and English. I also live with my mom which I speak /text Mandarin with her everyday. I also don't have heavy accent (such as Beijing has very heavy "Er" accent when they speak). My accent is close to professional Chinese reporter.

I can practice conversational Chinese with you or teach you basic Chinese if you are a beginner. I can also help you with your Chinese homework, writing etc.

If you prefer me to prepare a lesson, I will use the best teaching books out there such as "Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar: A Practical Guide” (Modern Grammars)" , “Fundamentals of Chinese Characters” (Yale University Press), “Niubi!: The Real Chinese You Were Never Taught in School”, etc. Or whichever text books that you prefer to use.

I am looking forward to meeting with you! We will have a a lot of fun and in no time you will speak like a legit Chinese!

"Farangis have been teaching my teenagers Farsi for the last 9 months, within the first three weeks, they were able to make conversations and we were all excited, she always brings entertainments and different activities to the classroom and it made my teens more interested and engaged. They can now read and write low intermediate and speak high intermediate, communicating with their grandparents and watch Iranian movies with them. She is a great teacher :)"

"I enjoyed today, my first lesson with Delia. She asked questions and listened to the answers. I felt encouraged by her relaxed and flexible teaching style. She was patient. She waited for me while I took note. She repeated words and concepts that I didn't understand. We had created a learning plan, started to work on it. I feel hopeful I will finally be able to learn Italian. ;-)"

"Carla is great! She is very patient and she knows everything there is to know in ASL. She goes at your pace whether you're a slow learner or a fast learner. She has lessons planned out depending on if you're a beginner or more advanced. For example, she would teach colors or animals and then we would have a conversation in ASL about what we just learned and she would help me on any words I don't remember. She doesn't mind repeating herself either if she needs to. She is definitely the teacher/tutor you want!"
